Is there a way to purchase a high quality photo of "The Shot" that I could get framed? This is the highest resolution version I've found. You could probably get it printed.

The problem is that in the power conferences losing a game may actually improve a team’s NET and resume. What you say is certainly the case in the non-Power Conferences, but it’s not those teams we are generally competing with for an at-large bid, as the Bracket Matrix bears out. Teams will not los...

Where does it put us seeding wise for the NCAA? Firmly off the bubble? 10 seed?

None because Queta didn’t play. I don’t think those losses are solely on Miller, but he certainly didn’t lead us to victory. My argument isn’t over the losses being in Miller, it’s that we would be a better team if Miller would find something he can do well and specialize in it. Newbold was hailed ...

We've lost one more game this year compared to the same date in last season.

A Shot Doctor May Cure Ags' Shooting Woes

Queta opens up a floor. He hasn't drawn a double team more than once or twice this season yet. He played all season for us last year and it affects shooting.

Queta also represents a roster shake up.

Up to last year's air Force game, Porter had played 154 minutes,...
